“Boyz in The Hood” and “Shaft” director John Singleton has been confirmed and attached to directing “The A-Team” remake but has pulled out of directing the film because Twentieth Century Fox wanted more time to write the script, so they pushed “The A-Team” film back to 2010.
For the past year or so, Singleton seemed committed into directing “The A-Team” remake until now. Singleton had plot ideas that he wanted the film to not be a comedy at all but to be more like 80’s action movies. While there was no cast for “The A-Team” film, Singleton approached Woody Harrelson to play the role of Murdoch but Harrelson never confirmed the role. It has also been long rumoured that either Ice Cube or Tyrese Gibson will play B.A. Baracus.
That’s kind of too bad. I was rooting for Singleton to make the A-Team remake ’cause I think he’s the only director that can make a really good “A-Team” movie knowing what he did to the “Shaft” remake. Now that Singleton is out, I don’t want this film made at all.
